The MS Berge Stahl holds the title for the “world’s largest bulk carrier ship”. This vessel is currently registered in Norway but was previously registered in Liberia.

The 1,122 ft or 343 meters long ship has a capacity of 364,767 metric tons deadweight (DWT). It has a beam or width of 208.3 feet or 65 meters and a draft or depth in the water of 23 meters. Its diesel engine is 30 feet or 9 meters high that drives a single 30 foot or 9 meters propeller and puts out 27,610 horsepower (20.59 MW) with a top speed of 13.5 knots (25.0 km/h).

Due to its massive size, the ship can only tie up, fully loaded, at two ports in the world, hauling ore from the Terminal Marítimo de Ponta da Madeira in Brazil to the Europoort near Rotterdam in the Netherlands.

The ship was built in 1986 by Hyundai Heavy Industries for the Singaporean shipping company BW Group.
